Government welcomes saturated fat commitment

Public Health Minister Jane Ellison has praised firms including Sainsbury's, Tesco, Morrisons and Nestle for committing to reduce saturated fat in products as part of a new ‘responsibility deal’.

One in six male deaths and one in nine female deaths are from coronary heart disease - this is why it's critical that we challenge the way we eat and that we all make changes where we can.

It's hugely encouraging that companies providing almost half of the food available on the UK market have committed to this new Responsibility Deal pledge and they are leading the way to give their customers healthier products and lower fat alternatives.
